New York restaurant brings rapper Tupac's cafe vision to life

Though he didn't end up performing - Journey's very capable current lead singer, Arnel Pineda, contributed the vocals to "Separate Ways", "Lights", and "Don't Stop Believin'" - Perry instead chose to take the stage with a speech that thanked everyone from his former bandmates, Pineda, and Columbia Records to his roadies and longtime attorney.

Considering Chuck Berry is the single most important figure in rock history, it makes sense that the first Rock Hall ceremony following his death would open with an homage to the rock n' roll architect.

Rockers Pearl Jam spoke out about the dangers of climate change as they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame 2017.

"I came in my Steve Perry costume".

For almost two hours, the classic rock band displayed the soaring vocals, ear-popping base and drums, hot guitar licks and chilling keyboard sounds that made Journey one of the top bands of the late 1970s and early 1980s.

"I want my granddaughter to know I fought against an evil tide and had the masses by my side", she said. We never would've stopped.

Neal and Ross founded Journey along with drummer Ainsley Dunbar and keyboardist Gregg Rolie who will also be going into the Hall of Fame. "He's hip-hop history. He's American history", Snoop said. The Englishman said he was happy to be inducted in Brooklyn as the arena was half a mile (less than a kilometer) from the spot of his first sexual experience. Additionally, disco pioneer and super producer Nile Rodgers received the Award for Musical Excellence. "I'm aware I'm speaking to many young people who, without this Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, would have no clue who I am".

Cain told them that "I think he's [Pineda] certainly one of the reasons why we're [in the Rock Hall]".

The 45-year-old rapper gave a moving speech at the ceremony at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York in which he praised his friend - who died in 1996 at the age of 25 - as a "strong black man who stood up".

Grunge icons Pearl Jam, progressive rock leaders Yes, the experimental Electric Light Orchestra and arena packers Journey also were inducted into the rock shrine at the gala in NY.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony will be broadcast on HBO April 29 at 8:00 pm ET/PT. "So me being able to express some views on who he was and what he meant to me and the world and music in general, also to share a couple of stories between me and him that really impacted my life".

"We are looking forward to presenting songs from each of the first nine studio albums, including some surprises", said Yes guitarist Steve Howe in a news release.
